How many treatments are required will vary from person to person, and may depend on your treatment goals, current health, severity of your symptoms, and other factors.
No! We do everything possible to make you comfortable during your procedure. This includes the use of a local anesthetic prior to a stem cell injection, for example. Most patients report very little to no discomfort during treatment.
Because regenerative medicine uses the body’s own healing tools to promote tissue healing and growth, there are no risks with its therapies. In some cases, a treated area may remain red for a short while after a treatment session – such as after vampire facials. In most cases, however, there is zero downtime required after therapy, and you are free to resume your normal activities immediately.

It’s important you receive an evaluation by one of our providers to determine whether you’re a good fit for the treatment you’re seeking.

Yes, we accept Medicare and most major insurances. Eligibility and coverage will be determined based on your specific insurance plan.
